Ursula Scheider @ Braunstein-Quay Gallery

Greetings. Yesterday I visited the new exhibit of Ursula Schneider, a painter whose work I have admired for many years. Her new works are luminous and innovative! She laminates sheer nylon with a water-based urethane and paints with pigments bound with the same material. Her imagery is based on the Hudson River and the shimmery quality of the nylon comes through subtly in the images of the water. She has dismissed the stretcher bar and hangs her work on the wall with velcro. A great solution for all of us who are faced with storage issues. Her show opened last week and remains up through July. The gallery is on Clementina between Folsom & Howard off of 4th St.
